Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a house cleaner during the COVID-19 pandemic?

The best way to set up a consultation with a house cleaner during the COVID-19 pandemic is by using virtual, online tools. Start by performing an online search for local house cleaners. Message them to set up either a phone call or video call to perform a consultation. During this call, they can give you recommendations and may be able to estimate the cost of their services. Be sure to discuss whether they accept virtual payments and any precautions they can take to perform the job safely.

How can I find out if a house cleaner is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

A house cleaner is generally not considered an essential service sector during the coronavirus pandemic. To find out which services are considered essential, visit your city and state government, and read their guidelines. A national list of essential service providers can be found on CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 site. This webpage lists 16 different infrastructure sectors considered to be essential. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Can I use digital payments to pay for house cleaning?

Not only do many house cleaners accept digital payments through platforms like Zelle, PayPal, Square Cash, Google Pay, Venmo and more, but this may become more common as the COVID-19 pandemic pushes more service workers to digitize. This means you can pay your house cleaner without making physical contact or handling money. 

If cleaning is absolutely essential during the current crisis, consult with the house cleaner beforehand to ensure a safe monetary transaction that complies with current government guidelines and recommendations for social distancing.

Does a house cleaner need to enter my home?

Yes, in almost all cases a house cleaner needs to enter your home. However, a cleaner may not need to enter your home if they are solely cleaning outside areas. 

There may be some cases in which a cleaner is necessary. If so, take precautions — avoid being in the same room, make no physical contact, sanitize any surfaces and pay through a digital service instead of using cash.

Do house cleaners offer remote or virtual services?

House cleaning is generally done in person, but some may be willing to offer remote services. If you find a house cleaner’s profile that states they’re offering remote services, contact the pro to talk about your options. 

If you’d rather hire a house cleaner to clean your home when the pandemic is over, you may be able to book an appointment at a later date. Start by comparing local house cleaners in your area side-by-side.

What is the difference between a housekeeper and a house cleaner?

Although some house cleaning and housekeeping duties might overlap, a house cleaner is charged with the top-to-bottom cleaning of a home. House cleaner duties typically include basic and deep house cleaning, such as washing and sanitizing countertops, floors, tubs, toilets, kitchens and more.

Housekeepers or maids are hired to lightly clean and maintain certain aspects of the home. This might include dusting, washing dishes, changing sheets, doing some meal preparation and restocking the client’s groceries and personal care products.

It’s also worth noting that a housekeeper or maid is usually one individual employed to a home (sometimes hired as a live-in), while a house cleaner is oftentimes accompanied by a team of cleaners. 

What should I ask a house cleaner or maid before hiring them?

There are many questions to ask a cleaning service before you hire them to make sure they’re the right fit. These questions might include:

  • How much do you charge?
  • How do you set your prices -- per hour or per square foot? Or, do you charge a flat rate?
  • What is your past work experience? Can I see a list of references?
  • Are you accustomed to working with different home or apartment types and sizes?
  • Can you work with children or pets in the house?
  • What types of cleaning products do you use?
  • Do you bring your own cleaning supplies and products?
  • How often can you clean my home?
  • Is there anything you recommend I do (or don't do) to my home before you arrive?

How often should you have your house cleaned?

The frequency you should have your house cleaned depends on several factors, and the best professional house cleaner can give you a rough estimate of costs so you can budget how often you need someone to clean your home. 

Daily house cleaning may be necessary if you have a home with a large number of bedrooms with young children and kids, although other homeowners may benefit from weekly house cleaning. A weekly cleaner can clean the bathroom, kitchen, do laundry, vacuum and mop. An occasional deep house cleaning is most beneficial for people who have recently renovated a home or are looking to do a spring clean.

My house cleaners showed up ten minutes early and worked for 3 1/2 hours. Not only did they clean my house, but they also cleaned my interior windows and blinds. Nice girls. Good workers. I will be booking again in two weeks for regular cleaning. 👍😊

Ana and her crew were very responsive and reasonably priced. They were prompt and I was able to trust them with the property. They cleaned it from ceiling to carpet. Only downer was that there was a shelf in the freezer that wasn't cleaned but it was easy in comparison to the entire house. I didn't do a walk through with them, as I left them at the house to do their work. Every shelf, between tile, carpet was literally spotless. Regardless, I'd work with them again and highly recommend them. The oven and stove were so clean. AMAZING WORK!

I needed somebody to clean my Parent’s house at the last minute, meaning it needed to be done that evening or at the very latest, the next morning. Received four inquiries back, David & Lupita said they could do it that evening. In a nutshell, I started inquiring about 3 o’clock, and by 5:50, they were 10 minutes early at my parent’s house. They worked fast, were very thorough, and also were very friendly I might add. I would recommend them in a heartbeat, and they will now be cleaning the house my girlfriend and I live in.

This company did an outstanding job for me. My house was very dirty due to animals, grandkids and my age. It is now sparkling clean and for a very reasonable price. Julia and her co-worker were friendly, outgoing people. I will definitely have them back!

Ana and her team exceeded my expectations! They were prompt, responsive and courteous. Extremely professional. Very hard working. My house is shining and smells amazing. I have glass shower doors which are a pain to clean and they are sparking ✨✨in a way I’ve never been able to accomplish 🌟 I’m beyond happy with their cleaning service. They bring their own supplies and vacuum cleaner etc. even my heat and air vents are free of dust now (we always forget about those when we clean😂) and literally everything looks fabulous. My appliances are spot free now and she cleaned inside my microwave, which I didn’t ask or expect. Lots of extra TLC and attention to details 🙌🏻👍🏻😀 I HIGHLY recommend! I will definitely have them clean my townhome on a regular basis. I’ve never used a housecleaning service and didn’t realize what a wonderful help it would be for two full time working folks who are barely home long enough to sweep the floor let alone clean anything for real 😉

I am incredibly grateful to the team for working so hard to ensure our house was so thoroughly cleaned. We are so happy with the final results.. they managed to make our house sparkle and look like new. I experienced the best level of customer service, care and communication. Everyone I meet from the team (6) were very professional, polite and diligent. I am very impressed with how much they take pride in their work and guarantee customer satisfaction. I will definitely be recommending them to friends and businesses I work with.
